Day 14 – Today has been a day of recouping from our annual Arctic Blast weekend. Unfortunately work doesn’t really let me recoup, but such is life. On today’s plate as far as Scouting goes, all I have scheduled is a Klondike Derby prep meeting that is replacing our typical Troop meeting tonight. This is the first year I’m concerned if we’ll have enough boys wanting to go for even one sled team (we’ve usually had 2 sleds go in the past).
The new ‘Tour Plan’ is quickly approaching. Has anyone gotten any training or instructions from their Council on this? I have not heard a peep from our local Council besides that it’s going to replace the current tour permits. Does anyone else find it funny (and sad) that the online tour permit application will be no more and we have to go back to submitting them on paper? I really liked being able to fill out a tour permit online and just print it off at home. Don’t understand the backwards step the BSA is taking there…maybe it will all come to light soon.
